CHANGE CLASS COLORS
JUNIORS ADOPT BLUE AND GOLD
A8 CLA88 EMBLEMS.
SELECT DESIGN TOR THE CAPS
Frank Wheelock Is Unanimously
Chosen Assistant Business Man
' 'ager of the Cornhusker for
the Coming Year.
The junior class held an important
business meeting yesterday morning
at IT; 30 and a number of things of
more' than usual interost wore dls
cussed. On account of the intense
cold rather a small number of the
faithful turned oiit but those presont
made up in interest, what tho meoting
lacked In numbers.
The annual election by tho Junior
class of an assistant business man
ager of tho Cornhusker took placo at
this meeting. Mr. Frank Wheelonk
was placed in nomination and his olep;
tion was made unanimous without
any other names being presented to'
tho class. Mr. Wheelock will work
with Mr. Bontloy, the business man
ager;' In looking after 'the financial
success of the school book.
Change Class Colors.
It had been felt by a number of
members of the class that the colors,
greoh and white, were not good either
for "(decorative purposes or, for uso In
class caps. The matter was brought
to a head at this meeting and after
uonie discussion the colors, Wgro.
changed from green and white to blue
and ' gold. It was contended that the
original colors were adopted as more
or loss of a Joke during the first year
of the existence of tho -class and were
never adopted with any regard for the
way' they would appear when actually
The matter wjilch called tho at
tention of the class to the desirability
of changlngUc class colors was tho
attempt which is now being made to
get 'a new style of class caps which
will be satisfactory to all. It was de
clared that it waB fpund impossible
In the freshman year of the class to
got capB which were good enough
so that anyone dared wear them, using
greeh and white as the colors. Ac
cording to present plans the cap for
the men will be similar to tho "bull
dog" style which is now very popular,
while the cap for the girls will be a
design more satisfactory to them.
Discuss New Society.
There Is a movement now on foot
in the junior class to organize a so
cloty of men similar to tho" "Inno
conta" In the senior class. A com
mlttoo was appointed to consider tho
matter and will report tho result of
their investigation at a later meeting.
The "Innocents" have been In exist
ence for a number of years and have
built up quite a 'reputation for them
selves during tliis time. At the close
of each school year thirteen new mom
bora are chosen from tho succeeding
senior class and the selection has
come to bo consilcred as a high honor.
The "Innocents" take it upon them
selves to boost worthy school enter
prises and have thus doneta valuable
work in the school.
It Was expected that some action
would be taken upon tho matter of
clasH pins, but as the latest designs
havo pot yet arrived the matter was"
left In tho handVof ,Uie.,commJtteo,and
will he reported upon at tho noxl
meeting. Chairman Alexander of the
junior prom spoke at considerable
length of the planB which 'are being
made for that event and declared) that

Beltzer has been on tho Cornhusker
football team for two years. Ho also
is captain of the baseball nine for thhi
spring. In tho fall of 1907 he won
his gridiron "N" by playing In the
Minnesota game at left end. Last fall
he was loft halfback on the eleven nnd
was a brilliant star In punting and In
throwing tho bdll on the forward pass.
His passing of tho spheroid in this
latter play was so accurate that ho
won tho reputation of'belng one of tho
best open play 'football men In the
Missouri Valley. It was his punting
In the Iowa and AnSes games that
gave Nebraska the necessary advant
age for Bcorlng on several occasions.
Absence Was Felt.
His absence from the second half
of tho Minnesota game last fall prob
ably cost the Cornhuskers that con
test Coach Colo believed that had
the now captain of tho Cornhuskers
played all of that game his punting
would havo enabled bis team to get
near enough to the Gopher goal to
' Beltzer played third base on the
varsity baseball- nine last spring, and
tho season before, nnd was coliMdered
the best man on tho nine. His work
with the Cornhusker ball twlrlors at
tracted the' attention of Bov,erdl 'pro
fessional, baseball managers . who at
tempted to hire hlii' for next summer,
Beltzer, however, liked the college

Tho result or the election today was

Tum to continue la tae raco any

boon tho only mon mentioned for the
captaincy and had1 split ' itie 'fourteen
votes causing a doadlock which' could
not bo broken until dho 6r"fcoth of
thorn docldod to withdraw.

Whon It becamo known that Frum

the Arapahoe boy eight voteB, or the
necessary number to oloct.
Frum, who ' played loft tacklo on
tho varsity for two years, announced
today his Intention of taking a dogreo
at the cIobo of this Bomostcr. This
means that he will not return to

Fundamentally Ethical and There
Is a Place, for One to do
convocation yesterday Professor
asalgnol of. tho 'political rec6a6my
department spoke on the unusual sub- ,
foot "Bread and, gutter."1 HJi ttfk,
howovor, was much broader la Its
scopo than a narrow Interpretation
of 'his subject would Indicate' Ift'Jfak
his talk might almost be described as
a discussion of tho rotation of luxuries
arid necessities to our life. r '
Professor Lo Rosslgnol declared
that political economy has' boeVmuch
maligned nnd often' callodf therdlimal
science, and its professor have' boon
chllod tho professor's of the dismal
science. Whild this might havd boon
thin once, political economy' & 'rio
longer "the dismal science that it o'neo
was. t ' '
' 'Ho declared that hlB subject, "Broad
and Butter," might bo takon as typical
of th6 hocessltieB afad "luxuries oliro',
tho bread as typlcai ofthocndcoBBlU6B
and tho butto'r as 'typical of thiT.'itf
urleB. The conception of luxuries is
veiy broad and may be taken io: in
clude atmoBt ovdrythlng. Education
is ono of tho luxuries, and even re
ligion In Its modern -sense, as moan
ing humanitarJanlsm and philan-
throphy, is a luxury. Bvori,,,good
manners ahd good ethics are fructifies.
Standard Applied in Llf.Mf
What is known n't tho bread4 nd
butter standard Is tho one "iisuajly
applied in our ovory' dayllfo.M Wb
don't, howovor, llko to have thfesb
standards applied to tho higher walk's
of life and yot they" are often 'so
applied. In valuing tho work of the
vast majority of people, howovor, a
bread and butter standard is'fair' and
our value to society is dur 'market
value. Tho ordinary work of the' aver
ago man Is to earn his bread and but
ter through holplng to givo" to society
Its broad and butter. This principle
pi exchange is at '$e bottom '.'of the
inddsrlaiw' ? - '?;;, 4
In,; general' the thing whjcjifthe
worjd wants Is, tho hings; ;wjt(lch it
needs but this k not always tho" case.
A young person, 'just starting bdt ih
life, should chooso some place for him
self whoro bo may givo the,. world
what Itr needs ns1 well as'whaflt Wants.
It is impossible for some of us "who
aro older to change the work In; which
wo are engaged, but It is opssiblo.'for
you who havo not yot commenced
your work to choose ' something ;in
which you do the world a real service.
Material Is Fundamental.
In life the spiritual Is to a 'large
extent based upon the material vWhl!e
a man Is still struggling for his. daijy
bread he Is in no position to; pursue
altruistic ends. ' In a, broad sense a
very poor man is not in 'any position
to 'help others to any extend, , -There
Is a cor tain 'class of people
who lopk upon the acquiring of bread
and butter wltlT contempt. This" Is
